Charge Into Battle With Plastic French Lancers By Warlord

February 29, 2016 by brennon

Warlord Games have come out with a new plastic kit for those of you wanting to add some cavalry to your Napoleonic French armies in Black Powder. See what you think of these French Line Lancers below who could be your answer to a bit of shock and awe on the tabletop…

French Line Lancers

Mostly used for scouting but with a deadly array of armaments these could be a good way to force your foes off the field. They would have been great at engaging other cavalry and of course infantry that had been caught out of formation.

Each of these riders were armed with a lance, sabre and two pistols meaning that they could answer plenty of problems. Warlord have also come up with a few options for your Lancers too.

Here you see them with options to make the riders into a Standard, Leader and Musician giving you the command element that would lead your men into battle. I think these soldiers look rather flashy and although I’d most certainly collect the British I think that they would make a fine addition to a French force.

What do you think?
